“The leadership chose the pursuit of common good and posterity will vindicate us all for standing with our country. “

Kyari said the the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had by their action demonstrated absolute faith in the country.

“They showed understanding on inevitability of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) deregulation and jointly charted way forward to secure local refining sufficiency through greater stakeholder inclusiveness and transparency.

“We will follow through diligently,” he added.

Newsmen report that the NLC and TUC had suspended the strike at the early hours of Monday following a meeting with the Federal Government.
